Dean Julie, student of life

“When you’re a young adult, your own voice needs to be the strongest one you hear. It is your college experience to own, to have agency over — you need to be the author of it,” said Dean of Freshmen and Undergraduate Advising Julie Lythcott-Haims ’89, known affectionately as Dean Julie, who will speak at Stanford’s inaugural TEDx event this Saturday.
